Meeting William for the First Time in Alabama
This past weekend I took a trip to Alabama to meet my new grandson. He is perfect in every way, of course. After arriving in Atlanta on Friday afternoon, I made the drive to Montgomery, AL in time to have dinner with William and his parents. Here he is in his new hats I made for him.
The weekend was extremely busy and included a trip to my inlaws farm so they could meet him as well. This is my husband's sister, Sarah, holding William. Having six children of her own I think she knows what she is doing.
On Saturday my mother, grandmother and step-dad arrived and we were able to take a 5 generation photo.
I consider myself lucky to have not one, but two such photos, as they are quite rare. Of course, once they all arrived I lost all holding privileges where the baby was concerned.
Sunday was a very long day that started at 4am central time with the drive back to Atlanta to catch my flight back to Denver (and then a 5 hour drive home from there). The long days were worth it though and I am looking forward to returning to Montgomery around Thanksgiving for another (short) visit.
